new move winter concerns

My family and I just moved to Montana From eastern Washington and we have 19 head of horses and I am trying to learn the needs and requirements to maintain a healthy herd in this entirely new environment for us all. I have never dealt with snow more than 4 inches, is there resources that I can check into that can help me keep my horses healthy. I have 6 old horses that we turned all but 2 out to pasture and they are doing fine with most the horses so far but my really old ones are not on pasture and have more needs for their well being however since I'm new to pasturing my herd I need some guidance on what to be on the lookout for and what might be best to do for my herd in this mountain environment.

Girth size

Hi, I have a good almost new Tuffy girth which is 80cm (that's 30" US) and a good almost new horse with a heart girth measurement of 197cm (that's 38" US) actually it comes out at about 7 1/2" difference on conversion so 3 3/4" short either side. Acceptable or too short, what do you think? I Kind regards from France, Tony.
